The bankroll-challange is still going great! However this made me think abit about my bankroll management. One of the pros here att OP told me he is playing 50xbuy-in on his stakes and I thought I would do the same. Why I would do this is simple!
Since I started to play NL10 I havn't really had any loosing session worth speaking about yet, this made me think abit if it's because I really crush the limit, or I run really good on the cards right now. I think it's a combination, I do play really good now if I'm allowed to say it myself, but even though but my net winning and net EV is possitive, my EV is not as high as my net winnings. I've been having two or three all-ins when I went in as a favourite but got an "unlucky" card on the turn just to see the river come as a saver for me.
So right now I have 600$ in my bankroll and will continune with this until I reach 1250$ to move up to NL25.
Another interessting thing is that I've changed my game-style more and more for everyday. I've been adapting a more LaGish play-style than I had before. Of course this does not mean I play every hand like an idiot, however, I play so much more against players I have against me on the table, and I play so much more hands in position than I did before. I feel much more comfortable to 3bet the UTG with maybe 76s while I'm in on the bottom if I know that he is going to fold enough times to make it profitable. I also started to think more about my c-bets thanks to this. Do I have outs if he calls, what can I represent, how does the board look to him? Is it scary? Yeah sure I lose more money sometimes if I don't get any cards but I'm keep bounching the small pots, but however... I've never been winning this much big pots cause people don't actually understand that I think twice before I make a move.. So the microstakes players often pushes me with their marginal hands when I've hit the nuts just cause they are getting sick of me trying to push them around.
So I want to say it again get some good stats for your HM2 or whatever you are using, practice alot on learning to know what these stats mean while actually playing the game and be extra careful with your position on the table, this is what I've experienced being important when you try to loose up your game!
